(Read to Educate and Play)
2016 | Philippines
The Read to Educate and Play is a functional literacy program of the non profit organisation Life Xtenders, Inc. Their aim is to extend help to alleviate the plight of the poor in Iloilo GIDA (Geographically Isolated Disadvantaged Areas) communities for them to be able to come back even stronger and more self-sufficient.
We ventured out to supply books, paint and a new library to a daycare center on a remote island in Concepcion, Iloilo. The community got hit hard by the strong typhoon Yolanda back in 2013 and a majority of the houses got destroyed.
